How sad, Michael. We've been to Halifax and enjoyed time spent there as well as many other areas of Nova Scotia. Frightening scenario for the residents and their families afar who worry about them. I hope things stay under control.

Thanks, Nancy
They got the fire under control the next day, thanks to a little rain

I haven't been home in 8 years. I miss it

Wildfires are truly frightening, Michael. Fantastic photos. Glad your mother is OK, and the fires are now out. Carol

The pictures are fantastic, but the story behind them devastating. BJ

Hi Mike,
I agree with B.J....the photos you used are great, but the story of the fire itself is sadder than sad. Thank God your Mom's home was not affected.

I am so upset with my new computer,
I have worked three days faithfully on an article Are You a Lady?
And lost every bit of it. As I typed each paragraph I saved it, but when I lost everything, I went to my documents and could not pull it up. I wanted to cry because I had put so many hours into it
